George Soros Funds Occupy Wall Street

Radical anti-American billionaire George Soros is a major backer of a left-wing group that is funneling money to the Occupy Wall Street movement.
 
The nonprofit organization at the receiving end of Soros’ largesse, Alliance for Global Justice, is managing donations benefiting the communists, socialists, anarchists and hippies now occupying Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan.  As of Oct. 19, OWS had taken in a grand total of $435,000 from all sources, including donations made by individuals online and in person, according to reports.
 
It should surprise no one that Soros (net worth: $22 billion), the ultimate Wall Street insider and preeminent funder of the activist Left today, embraces Occupy Wall Street.
 
As I note in my new book Subversion Inc., this Communist sympathizer co-founded the ultra-secretive Democracy Alliance, a billionaires’ club that wants to radically transform America.  He has said that European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now” and favors American decline.  Soros, a currency manipulator with an insider-trading conviction, praises Red China effusively, saying the totalitarian nation has “a better-functioning government than the United States.”
 
The Alliance for Global Justice has received grants from George Soros’ philanthropy, the Open Society Institute ($100,000 since 2004), and from the left-wing, money launderers of the Tides Foundation ($60,000 since 2004) that allows high-profile donors to give secretly to radical causes.
 
Much of the money received by the Tides network of philanthropies has come from Soros’ charity, according to philanthropy databases.
 
The Open Society Institute has given $24,599,553 to the Tides network of philanthropies since 1999.  Of that total, $18,154,270 went to the Tides Foundation and the remaining $6,445,283 went to the Tides Center, which like the Alliance for Global Justice, serves as a fiscal sponsor for small or new activist groups.
 
A hotbed of anti-American activity, the Alliance takes money from the most extreme left-wing philanthropies operating in America today. The Alliance has accepted grants from the (pro-Fidel Castro) Arca Foundation ($185,000 since 2001), General Service Foundation ($165,000 since 2001), and Foundation for DeepaEcology ($30,000 since 2000), an anti-science environmentalist group that regards human beings as a cancer on the earth.
 
Alliance for Global Justice is a “fiscal sponsor,” which means that it serves as a financial clearinghouse for radical causes that haven’t filed papers to incorporate themselves as nonprofit organizations.  Donors give money to the Alliance and are then able to deduct the donations from their income tax even though the cause they are funding isn’t recognized as tax-exempt by the IRS.  Fiscal sponsors take a percentage of donations as management fees, and then pass on the rest to the cause favored by the donor.
 
Founded in 1998, the Alliance, which is headquartered in Washington, D.C., has a long history of anti-American activism.  The Alliance and its resident, Katherine Hoyt, are longtime supporters of the Sandinista (Communist) movement in Nicaragua and the Zapatistas, a Marxist-Leninist guerrilla movement in Mexico.
 
When a credit card-processing glitch caused the Alliance’s website to reject $144,000 in donations for Occupy Wall Street, Hoyt claimed that an evil capitalist conspiracy was afoot.  “I can’t help but believe that politics must be involved somewhere,” Hoyt said in a statement on the Alliance’s website.
 
It turns out the donations were rejected because of the Alliance’s own technological blundering, so Hoyt’s comment was scrubbed from the website.  Alliance leader Chuck Kaufman blamed technology for the banking error.
 
“Our group normally processes a dozen donations a week, so all of a sudden Occupy Wall Street took off and it was 400 per day,” Kaufman said.  “We just didn’t understand the banking architecture.”
 
Other causes supported by the Alliance include the antiwar group World Can’t Wait (a spinoff of the Revolutionary Communist Party), and Courage to Resist, which encourages U.S. soldiers to desert and supports accused traitor Bradley Manning of WikiLeaks infamy.  Its leaders also have an abiding hatred of Israel.  The Alliance has funded anti-Israel groups including Israeli Anarchists Against the War and Bil’in Center for Joint Struggle.
 
The Alliance for Global Justice’s antipathy toward things that Americans revere makes it a perfect business partner for George Soros.

    Soros belongs in jail. That Hungarian POS has made his money by manipulating currency to the worse of everyone but him. Occupy Soros is more to the point!

  • Altosackbuteer

    This is from a recent CBS 60 minutes report, edited/composed by Steve Kroft:

    “George Soros is an evil, evil man…… He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.” He killed and robbed his own Jewish people.”

    How did he do this?

    “György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary.

    Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity.  The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the Gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.

    When Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.

    Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.” 70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary , nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect”

    During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year.”

    KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

    SOROS: Yes. Yes.

    KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

    SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

    KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many, years. Was it difficult?

    SOROS: No, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.”

    Soros is a kapo and a betrayer.  The latter skill is one he’s gone on to employ to great effect in his role as a Master of the Universe, using financial manipulation to ruin millions of lives.

    A rich Jew funding a group of far-left negro wannabes; I wouldn’t have guessed that in a million years!!!!!

    P.S. for all you idiots out there in do-gooding Christian Conservative land, i was being sarcastic.

  • 8Pillars

      Once again, he.com prints an article that merely preaches to the same old choir, the mutual admiration society who already thinks that way, but fails to address anyone new who can be persuaded about these important issues and thereby make an actual difference.  Why do it, then?  It’s mere Spinning of the wheels to talk about “Communist sympathizer co-founded the ultra-secretive Democracy Alliance”.  

    Oh!  Oh!  An ‘ultra-secret society’?  Wow, it’s Ultra Secret!  A ‘vast conspiracy’.  How many times has the worn-out phrase ‘communist sympathizer’ been used and over-used?  WHO is persuaded by rhetoric like this?  Sure, the readers of he.com believe it, but they already did!  

    Big deal; waste of time to preach to the choir.  Articles that can effectively persuade someone NEW is what’s called for.  This is a chronic problem with many he.com articles – they preach to the choir and all the comments sound like one big mutual admiration society, but they fail to reach anyone new, fail to convince anyone who didn’t think that way already and therefore FAIL TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  That renders them meaningless.

  • Leroy_Whitby

    The FBI under Obama is busy shipping guns to Mexican cartels instead of stopping this NAZI.

  • http://www.generalpatriot.com/ GeneralAl

    Soros put his arm around Barack Obama and called him “My adopted son”! I jest but its true as far as financial support goes.

  • Accuweatherman

    Inasmuch as our “choir” romped to victory in 2010 and is poised to take back Washington in 2012, the choir does not seem so old and small to me as you. THEY SUCCEED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. The stale same old choir is in OWS and no one knows what they are preaching on any given day.  I doubt HE is moved to change its message as more and more Americans are listening and agreeing. 

  • Tomas de Torquemada

    George Soros reminds me of the antagonist in Malachi Martin’s “Windswept House” — an evil and powerful man, a literal slave to the Devil, seeking the establishment of the New World Order.  In the novel, the Holy Father assigns a resourceful Carmelite friar the task of converting this minion of Satan.  I wonder whom Pope Benedict XVI has sent to do the same for Soros.  If he has.  I hope he has.

  • Accuweatherman

    An adopted son who shines his foster daddy’s shoes. The final fate of the proud community organizer. And I don’t jest.

  • tadcf

    So what?  The Right-wing has the Koch brothers, and the Left has George Soros.

  • Keith1941

    Yeah….

  • Chayal Boded

    I think I hate this guy, soros that is. One would think being filthy rich would be enough, but nooooo. For some reason he feels like he’s got to f**k things up for everybody else. We ought to ship his ass back to France to serve his insider trading sentence. If we had an actual law abiding AG in the DOJ, this wouldn’t be a problem. G*d I can’t wait till 2012.

  • Sweetrae aka: LeAnn

    We knew that the communist, anti-Semite, Kenite was funding this. To tadcf, nice try dumbass. Oh you forgot the throw in there Halliburton with your verbal diarrhea.
    Lets see Koch actually provides goods, Soros destroys nations currency and advocates a one world order. You must be all for that Skippy.
    Two things OWS WON’T occupy, is a shower and a job service.  

  • Chayal Boded

    Another waste of oxygen.

  • Chayal Boded

    Got that right.

  • esto_perpetua

    No comparison there, pal. The Koch brothers are legitimate manufacturers of useful products that are conservative and nothing more. Soros is a currency manipulator, a convicted insider trader and a supporter of everything anti-American and anti-capitalist while being a ruthless and greedy billionaire at the same time. He has stepped on many corpses on his way to amass his bloody money empire.

  • Dustoff

    Do YOU ever research “anything” before you post this BS?
    Knowing people will point out your many failures with in your comment. 

  • SolidCitizen

    Soros… billionare speculator who amassses fortunes by betting against governments he manipulates to engage in ruinous economic policies… The epitome of a “Greedy Wall Street Insider market Manipulator”…. hiding behind “free speech” as he uses less than 1% of personal fortune to manipulate the politics in this country…

    Koch Brothers… billionare industrialists who amassed fortune by running Industrial companies that employ 50,000 americans, who advocate for beneficial policies that will improve the economy of the United States and enable prosperity and growth for all…  The epitome of a “Main Street Made in America.. business leader”…

    No we don’t have anyone remotely like George Soros on the right-wing… The two men and what they represent could not be more different.. .. 

    If America Fails.. George Soros makes more money, and laughs all the way to the bank that the idiots in the street and in congress were so clueless about financial reality that they believed his BS.  and bankrupted the country… 

    If America Fails.. the Koch Family, and their business fail also, and they cry all the way to the bank  because they could not prevent the obvious ruin of a country by a corrupted and idiotic political class.  

    Again, other than being rich.. there is no comparison between the two men.  Are you so blinded by class envy that you cannot distinguish a  “Wall Street Speculator” doing nothing more than buying and selling, stocks, bonds, currencies, and financial derivatives, from a “Main Street Industrialist” running a  portfolio of real businesses employing 50,000 americans, producing products and services that benefit the economy?   

    On that basis alone who has the biggest financial interest in a successful and prosperous American economy?? 

  • GomeznSA

    Yep – he has direct ties or controlling interests in at least 50 media outlets. Should the FCC perhaps be looking into that – might be a monopoly of sorts………………

  • Altosackbuteer

    Soros is full of bleep about China (as well as everything else).

    It is barely functional.

    Most of China is semi-anarchic.  The people manage justice at the street level and dare the government to do something about it.

    It is a classical robber-baron, 19th century capitalist state.  A living proof that Hegel was wrong when he said that the Dialectic was one-way; China reverted from Socialism back to early capitalism.  No environmental standards, no workplace standards.

    It is also on the edge of various kinds of ecological collapse.

  • Altosackbuteer

    In the meanwhile, I’ve been wondering why SOMEONE, ANYONE in the House of Representatives hasn’t filed motion to IMPEACH Øbama Øsama for BLATANT violation of the War Powers Act, with regard to Libya.

    One would THINK that the Speaker of the House would be jealous of preserving the share of war-making responsibillity that belongs to the Congress.  But not weeply, flaccid, ineptly-named BOEHNER.

    One would THINK that Geriatric Ron Paul (or Bachmann) would file their own motions sua sponte to Impeach Øbama Øsama.  Geriatric Ron has been fighting the Isolationist war for his entire public life.  You KNOW he HAS to oppose the sort of adventure Øbama Øsama got America into in Libya.

    Why doesn’t Geriatric Ron file the Motion himself?  It would do WONDERS for his campaign too.

    This ex-Nazi collaborator should have his US citizenship stripped, then immediately deported.    He is a clear and present danger to the United States, funding subversive activities while undermining US currency and wealth.

  • 8Pillars

    Right – so are you arguing that negative hyperbole and whining is the way to achieve that?  Most articles do that, failing to provide any positive, actual and realistic plans for achieving that.  We need positive leadership, not negativity and constant whining about how badly everything has been messed up and how America is in such terrible shape – how to fix it?  I still believe and have faith in The Constitution and the American People, even if he.com doesn’t – as evidenced by the tenure of most articles painting a picture of gloom & doom and ‘the sky is falling!’.

  • 8Pillars

    Are you actually arguing that if I do it, it’s OK for he.com to do it?  You’re not making sense (again).

  • 8Pillars

    Wow – is that your best, genius?  It confirms you have no response On The Merits, I guess.  Why waste your time, then?  Move on, ignore, do something other than meaningless personal retorts…

  • 8Pillars

    Yeah, sarcastic… (hint: if you have to point it out, you have already lost)

  • 8Pillars

    Yeah, that’s why I said “and Libya’s fate”.

  • 8Pillars

    You’ve got me pegged – so what’s your excuse for following me around making meaningless personal comments that have zero to do with the subject matter?  What a waste of time – try ignoring next time if it bothers you so much.

  • 8Pillars

    Gee, FRed, I didn’t know you are a Captive Audience, forced to read all comments and suffer so!  You poor child…

  • Dustoff

    You got me… I would think it’s because of what happened last time with Clinton.  Plus having Dumber than a Rock Biden could be worse?

    Soros and others like him should be charged with economic terrorism and treason and dealt with accordingly. Too bad our government is collaborating in its own destruction. Let’s hope that in 2012 we can elect people who are awake enough to be willing to be Lincoln and stand up to evil regardless of the political fall out.

    8Pillarsofstupidity,

    Nah.

    It’s no secret.
    We’ve got a guy appearing in the local rag. 
    Occupy Harper Avenue
    Claims to be a “member” of Moveon.org.
    George told him to “mobilize” so he did.

    Astro Turf

    And Liberals like 8pillarsofstupidity are either stupid enough or dishonest enough to whitewash it.

  • TheNightHawk

    It’s not reall complicated.

    8PILLARS OF STUPIDITY  claims to be offended by HE reporting what he denies are facts.

    Let me bive you a hint 8pillarsofdenial:

    You can ignore reality all you want.  That doesn’t make it less real.

    Where is 8Pillars demanding to know why Obama has sent troos to Uganda?

    8pillars is merely a liar and an idiot.  Well, that and an Obamanite. (but I repeat myself)

  • Guest

    Soros, is a criminal and needs to be arrested and thrown in jail.

  • orlandorays

    So here’s the real dilemma. Does the average fleabagger know George Soros is their root sugar daddy? Or is the Hun ready for the possibility that the useful idiots will someday turn on him when they get violent against the “1%”?

  • Abydos76

    And that is why I believe that no strong action has been taken to remove the current president. The veep would be worse and I think that choice was made intentionally so.

  • Abydos76

    Such a post holds no water. True conservative thought is the basis of HE, and there is no need to change the message. The “choir” grows regardless, due to truth of the message. The articles and comments alone drew you here which gives HE credibility based on your argument. When it comes to finding HE for the first time, there will always be those that don’t agree and those that will.

  • 8Pillars

    Are you that brainwashed that you think you find The Truth in these Opinion pieces?  The Truth includes ALL, does not cherry-pick, spin and is not so heavily influenced by Bias.  This is an Opinion site and sometimes it’s OK, but more and more it’s hyperbole, platitudes (like your post), cliche’s and exaggeration, all the while keeping out any fact / info that, while True, doesn’t support or hurts the argument / opinion.  That is so obvious it’s self evident.  Slogans are not Rhetoric and this site is not Intellectually Honest, which is something all conservatives should demand or credibility goes out the window repeating brainwashed slogan-based hyperbole.

  • 8Pillars

    What are you even babbling about?  Your little ad hominem illustrates my point that you find more hyperbole, platitudes, exaggeration and ad hominem here than you do Truth or Fact.  Almost to a person, comments expressing disagreement do NOT argue on the merits in an honest argument, but attack the person writing it as if hurting that person is ALL that matters and never mind The Merits.  Childish.  Slogan-based thinking and rhetoric is one-dimensional and for children.  Does that shoe fit, Fellow American?

  • TheNightHawk

    I’m having some trouble with that shoe.  Could you take it out of your mouth first?

    I simply stated a fact.  It is astroturf.
    Only a brain dead turd would babble about Soros’ involvement being a conspiracy theory.

  • Abydos76

    I hate repeating myself, but your reply (like your post) holds no water. Would you care to argue what was said vs. throwing your favorite word “Hyperbole” around? I have seen nothing noteworthy from any of your posts beyond a person desperately trying to argue the rules of an argument. So tell us how you really feel.

  • Abydos76

    Give the kid a break, he just learned the meaning of the word “Hyperbole” yesterday. Now he is practicing using it in context and seeing what sticks. ;P

  • 8Pillars

    ha – I know when I’ve gotten to someone like you when all you can manage for a response is not intelligent, germane (look it up) and original thinking, but the taunts of a 7-year old whose been beaten and can’t stand the frustration.  Listen, maybe if you say ‘fool’ a few more times you can convince yourself that you really, really, really showed me, huh?  What a lame, weak response, child…

  • 8Pillars

    I’ve read your posts, genius, and they don’t even have 1/10th of the courage needed to actually speak On The Subject, but instead use the tactics of 4-year olds who always take refuge in silly, ineffectual insults when they are soundly beaten, like now.  Try again, and at least try to sound intelligent this time.  (or are you one of the Brainwashed?)

  • 8Pillars

    I’ve read your posts, and you LOVE repeating yourself, child.

  • Abydos76

    Who’s repeating who here? I’m merely having fun at your expense simply because you are wrong and your way of thinking is destructive when the future of the USA is at stake. One of my most favorate quotes is, “Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.” I am purposefully playing that idiot, because your position is assnine. Enjoy yo’self Troll!

    You are very poorly informed. Step one: Read the Communist Manifesto. Anyone who has recognizes that the 1% that Occupy keeps yelling about = the 9/10 that Karl Marx wrote about. Obama’s and Occupy’s obsession with fairness channels Marx directly – from those according to their ability to those according to their needs. He wrote of this fairness and how it could be used to destroy capitalism and herald in a new communist utopia. What we are witnessing right now is no less than a multi-pronged and very well financed coup from within – using tax payer and foreign money.

    It boggles my mind that you actually believe communism, anarchism and capitalism are the same thing. Communism is feudalism, pure and simple. A return to kings and totalitarian rule by the few. No one prospers under Communism unless they are part of the ruling class (who doesn’t have to participate in it – and incidentally, live under a system of capitalism). And no system wants equality, you’re deluding yourself. What government systems want is power, money and glory. They want to divide and conquer so that it’s easy to take things away from the people and award it to themselves.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4NUONATZWPLGB3WZHAYVVSFXAQ KeepingItReal

    Plain and simple, there has been a movement on for many, many years in which sovereign states are dissolved and regional unions are formed – thus the European Union, the African Union, and the North American Union, etc. This is not a conspiracy theory. You can read about it right on the UN website. The goal is that the UN will have the ultimate say in how the unions of the world act. You can see bits and peices of this ultimate philosophy here and there, such as the Soros-written doctrine Responsibility to Protect, and Obama bombing Libya without consent of congress. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta stated in a congressional committee afterward that congress was ceremonial and that the UN and NATO have supreme authority over the actions of the U.S. military. It is also why Obama could care less about what Americans think and feel. He is viewing the world stage. His next stop following the presidency will likely be as head of the UN National Security Council.

    I think that Soros is not thrown out because he is doing what present leaders of the world want – to bring America and the other democracies to their knees. Now, Bill Clinton first brought Soros in as a political actor and he knew full well that the man’s hobby was destroying monetary systems. Clinton called him “the closer” and that he is. On September 18, 2008 at 11am a massive, $550 billion dollar computerized draw down of U.S. Money Market accounts was made. Sixteen months earlier billions of dollars had been withdrawn from U.S. accounts – also at 11 am – following Lehman’s fall. Who knows if this had Soros fingerprints on it, but I would not be surprised. What is going on now is, in my opinion, a coup. It began as a financial coup from without and continues as a political coup from within.

  • Theodora Mousseva

    Even sheeple who think they are not sheeple are sheeple. Guys, read more Hegel and Marx to understand Soros and his left ideas.
